I was honored to receive the following reviews from two people I highly admire. They appear on Dr. Reisman's blog:
Sunday, March 30, 2014THE PIONEER VS. THE WELFARE STATE: Essays on Liberty in Peril by GEN LAGRECA
Strangling the Pioneering Spirit
The essays in this book are gems of excellent, powerful writing in a great cause. Again and again, when the book describes the original, pioneering spirit of America, it brings the reader to a mountaintop of admiration for freedom, for the unimpeded action freedom makes possible, and for the genius of our Founding Fathers in establishing a country dedicated to freedom. And again and again, when it describes the very different spirit that prevails today—the spirit of the welfare state—it plunges the reader into the depths of despair. Here, the reader is made to confront such things as the entitlement mentality run amok and the results of the 700,000 pages of stifling arbitrary rules and regulations that have been promulgated and accumulated in The Federal Register since 1936.
